A Florida man has reportedly been arrested for trying to force his fiancée to swallow her diamond engagement ring because she no longer wanted to live with him.
ClickOrlando.com reports that Faron Thompson was arrested Sunday on charges of battery via strangulation and child neglect.
Thompson's girlfriend of four years, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, said she was arguing with Thompson about moving her things out of her home and left the ring on the kitchen counter. When she went to retrieve it, she realized Thompson had the ring, according to deputies, adding that he tried to force the ring down her throat while holding her down.
Thompson also threatened to burn the woman’s house down, prompting her to call him a "psycho," Orange County sheriff's deputies said.
The woman told deputies also Thompson pushed her against a wall and covered her mouth to prevent her from breathing during the alleged attack as she held a one-year-old child.
